This bread is whole grain and has more protein and fiber than normal white bread. If you are trying to eat healthier, this bread is such a good swap for traditional bread!

What veggies should I use in a breakfast sandwich?
For this skillet breakfast sandwich, I use peppers and onions that I saute. I used frozen diced onion and fresh peppers that I cut myself. If you’re in rush, it is super convenient to use frozen veggies as opposed to fresh ones. It is easier and it tastes just as delicious! You can do whichever works best for you. You can always mix it up and add your favorite veggies instead, whatever you use will surely be delicious!
How long should I cook the bread?
I like to add a little bit more butter into the pan and toast the bread until it gets a little bit golden brown and crispy. Once it does, I then assemble the breakfast sandwich and let it cook for a little longer to make sure the cheese is melted and the bread is crispy. I would recommend cooking the bread a little bit before you add the egg and cheese to assure that your bread isn’t soggy when you’re trying to assemble your sandwich.
Can I prepare some of this beforehand?
Yes, you can easily prepare some of the ingredients for this skillet breakfast sandwich beforehand. One super easy way to prepare this beforehand is to have pre-diced veggies frozen and ready to be added to the skillet. Dicing some veggies and freezing them will save you a lot of time when you are making this sandwich. Another thing that I like to do to make this process faster is to make bacon beforehand and store it in the fridge so I can just crumble it into the omelet. This will also save you a ton of time.
How can I make this skillet breakfast sandwich recipe my own?
There are so many ways to make this recipe perfectly crafted to what you like. For example, you can use ham or breakfast sausage instead of bacon.
